Charlemagne (top left) and his eldest son, Pepin the Hunchback.

He was a man who, with the help of the papacy, changed the course of history.

Quite the man.

We know he was born on April 2, but not exactly on what year; whether it was 742, 747 or 748. No matter.

King of the Franks and King of the Lombards.
